I can't tell you...

...exactly where it originated, just that a number of the early Church fathers (and unfortunately I can't provide names here - my husband, a walking encyclopedia, could do it) had such ideas early-on and I've read reference to it a number of times. In Orthodox writings I have read several different beliefs concerning salvation, what happens after we die, etc. Some Orthodox writers do have a specific heaven-or-hell concept, but they tend to be the converts from Protestantism. "Cradle" (lifelong or ethnic) Orthodox have often written it more as I have described it.
